With their successful 30 years in the IT sector, the organization follows five major business motives- secure, repair, support, connect, monitor.

John Wybourn, the IT Manager at JW IT Resources, was looking for a solution to remotely manage a set of handheld Android devices owned by a potential client (care homes). They needed a solution that could restrict the devices to a few apps and selectively control the device settings. John browsed through the internet to obtain a possible solution to his requirements. After a dedicated research, he found Hexnode to be an apt solution to his requirements. He quickly signed up for the free trial offered by Hexnode and tried out the software. He was greatly impressed with the rich set of functionalities Hexnode offered and soon after the trial, John went forward with purchasing the required number of licenses.

“We did a lot of research into what was there and your solution does everything we needed.”

Hexnode helped John to smartly control the Android devices and deploy them for corporate activities. He could distribute the required number of work specific applications on to the devices directly from the Hexnode console. All the applications would get installed on the devices without any manual intervention which saved him an incalculable amount of time and travel cost.

“Hexnode seemed to be a different solution when I logged in and that seemed satisfactory...we just went with it.”

John could restrict the devices to a set of applications and websites as desired by the client company and ensure that the devices aren’t misused. The kiosk lockdown solution allowed him to lock the devices to a single or multiple application which served the purpose of device deployment. A set of additional functionalities helped him build a restrictive environment for the device users. Only the admin with the help of an exit password could unlock the devices from the kiosk mode hence adding on to device security.

“It's very clever, the kiosk lockdown is just does what we want.”

Hexnode’s simple and intuitive user interface allowed John to navigate through the console and configure the essential functionalities with great ease. He could apply any essential configuration at any time without having the devices in hand. He also received timely assistance from the technical support team at Hexnode whenever required. Any concern put forward was immediately resolved by the tech team, thus boosting the implementation process.

“The tech support is guys are knowledgeable...they are excellent.”
